Happy Birthday Card

I like to create personalized cards every once in a while and decided to do so for my mom’s birthday.  I found a Photoshop template online for the average card measurements and went to work.  I knew pink and purple would be my main colors so the background was easy to do.  I added a texture filter to the main area and then created a beveled border with a glass filter around the edges.  The flowers I found online were all the same color, so I adjusts the color balance to get more of a variation.  The vines originally had their own background but I adjusted the opacity to lighten it.  Lastly, I chose a feminine cursive font and proceeded to the inside of the card.  I left the vines the same and took out the flowers to leave some room for a personalized written message.  I liked the poem that I found online so I added it to complete the card.

Personalized Christmas Photo

My niece helps my Mom with the desert making at Christmas every year and a good opportunity came up to make her a nice photo for her hard work.  My mom took this photo with her phone camera so it  was not the best quality, but I figured I could toy with it and make it in to something memorable.  I used Photoshop 5 to do so.  I knew I wanted a white background to symbolize winter and I also wanted to erase the cabinets in the background.  I decided to use a star shaped brush to mask the unwanted area and trimmed out a candy cane frame I found on the internet.  I also cut out some pictures of random Christmas cookies I found as well.  I thought the font I chose added to the time of the season.Christmas Cookies 2012 001chloe 2
